Acacia TreeThe Acacia tree, native to the African savanna, is often called the Tree of Life. The sun, whose shape represents wholeness and completeness in many human cultures, supports and strengthens the Acacia. In turn the Acacia offers safe haven for weary travelers, both people and animals, as they tread their respective paths. The symbolism captured in this photograph, which I took in 1989 at Mt. Kilimanjaro, is the embodiment of the essence of my practice as a therapist.
